Unknown gunmen kidnapped two Nigerian Policemen in Rivers State, South-South of Nigeria.
The incident happened in Ngo community in Ardoni Local Government Area of the state.
NAN reports that the gunmen abducted the officers on Monday and whisked them to an unknown location.
The police have not disclosed the identity of the two unfortunate policemen at the time of filing this report.
NAN said the spokesman of the Rivers police command, Nnamdi Omoni confirmed the report without giving details.
He reportedly promised to provide details of the incident later.
The Rivers State government is concerned about the increasing insecurity in the state.
There was a report of a gun duel between the policemen and unknown assailants in Khana local government of the state on Monday.
The incident happened as policemen were tracking an alleged kidnapped kingpin.
The police spokesman said the kingpin, Leberi’s gang was responsible for the death of at least 30 people in Khana and Gokana Local Government Areas.
The daredevil kidnappers never keep their victims alive after collecting ransom, the police says.
Omoni said the police killed Leberi on Sunday night but not without some officers sustaining gunshot injuries.
